Sanford Aberdeen Acute Care Clinic extends weekend hours

ABERDEEN, S.D.(Press Release) — Sanford Health Aberdeen Acute Care Clinic is extending its weekend hours effective Saturday, Jan. 22. This change will allow Sanford Health to continue to meet the increasing health care needs of the Aberdeen community.

Sanford Health Aberdeen Acute Care Clinic, located at 3015 Third Ave SE Suite 100 in Aberdeen, will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of February.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you should get tested right away either at a clinic or by using an at-home test. Sanford Health asks that you don’t go to the emergency room for COVID-19 testing.

If your at-home test is positive, there is no need to retest elsewhere. Inform your doctor and any close contacts of your positive test result and then follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) protocol for isolation.

If your at-home test is negative when symptoms are present, you likely have another illness, such as a cold or influenza. Contact your health care provider if your symptoms worsen.

Doing your part by staying home if you are sick, wearing a mask when around others, getting the COVID-19 vaccine and booster when eligible, will protect yourself and others while also slowing the spread of the virus. You can schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment through My Sanford Chart or by calling (877) 701-0779.
